AT&T Center – Let’s go back to May 2, 2012. The San Antonio Spurs were in the first round of their 2012 playoff run and had just defeated the Utah Jazz to take a 2-0 series lead before sweeping the Jazz a few days later.
That day, Jazz coach Ty Corbin made a comment about San Antonio Spurs point guard Tony Parker that echoed a year later, as the Spurs defeated the Golden State Warriors by 18 points to take a 3-2 series lead Thursday.
“He’s a good player,” said Corbin of Parker a year ago, “and as he goes, his team goes.”
A year later, Danny Green had this to say of Parker, “When he does well, we do well.”
“He’s our generator offensively,” added Spurs head coach Gregg Popovich. “If he’s not aggressive then everything seems to slow down, so it’s important that he keeps that up.”
